I finally met Adam Scott Mazer.

I came up to Brooklyn yesterday to read at the New York book launch of The Bones of Us and I got to hang out with Adam before the reading and see the originals of the book.


The originals are really gorgeous. I also got to see some of the thumbnails Adam created to get down the concept of individual pieces. As a writer, I’m used to getting on a computer and writing and let the ideas unfurl. To see how Adam came up with the individual art pieces was fascinating.

The release party itself was excellent. I heard great poems that gave me a bit of a recharge poetry wise. I’m recovering from the unofficial after party (still).

My next reading is for Lit Demon’s reading series on May 27 at 9 pm EST. Details are here.
